Anti-Abortion Extremists Try To Trick Planned Parenthood In A Fake Sex-Trafficking Sting

Another day, another story about abortion rights that will make you want to vomit. Yesterday, anti-abortion activist Live Action released an edited video of “sting operations” at Planned Parenthood, which show hired actors playing a pimp and an underage prostitutes. The footage, which was secretly taped throughout January, allegedly shows Planned Parenthood counseling a man who says he needs to speak privately about getting STD treatments for some young girls, some of whom are portrayed as illegal immigrants or as young as 14. In one of the videos, the Planned Parenthood employee seems to suggest the girl could lie about her age to get services. In total, actors claiming to be sex traffickers visited 12 clinics in Virginia, Indiana, New York, New Jersey, Washington, D.C., and Arizona and in all the cases, Planned Parenthood contacted the local authorities afterwards to warn about sex trafficking.

Now there’s an anonymous East Coast-based woman going by the nom de plume “Charlotte Shane.”

“Charlotte Shane” pens a blog called Nightmare Brunette about her experiences in sex work. In a stellar piece on Salon.com, “Charlotte” explains she tries her hardest not to glamorize prostitution like Hollywood. “I never intend to glamorize my profession, and I don’t list expensive gifts I receive or lavish items I buy for myself,” she wrote. “I avoid rhapsodizing about exotic vacations or name-dropping hotels. I never disclose my rates and I don’t claim every encounter ends in mind-blowing orgasms — or any orgasm at all. That type of sensationalistic hype is really only good for selling books or selling face time on TV shows, neither of which I’m interested in.” She tries to be honest about what working as an escort really is: a job.
